CREATURE OF THE BLACK LAGOON: THE FILM MUSIC OF HANS J.SALTER
- Stock: 1
Mint cd. Released in 1994 by Intrada, the cd contains excerpts of music composed by Hans J. Salter from four movies. The cd reveals the versatility of Salter's talent as a film composer, including music composed for horror (CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON-1954), fantasy (THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN-1957), biopic drama (HITLER-1962) and sword and sandal (THE BLACK SHIELD OF FALWORTH-1954). Salter was a master of film music composition, and unfortunately his music is under represented on disc, especially on compact dis. His masterpiece score for THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN is a perfect example of his talent to compose for everything, especially for a film that blends the drama and the fantastic in equal measures, with the music balancing the poor production funding. The cd has been out of print since a very long time.
